I am brand new to this forum. Enjoying what I see thus far.

Wow. That's all I have to say. I will try not to ramble, but Im so excited and had so much fun, I just can't help it.

I have been lurking, searching, coveting... I finally found EXACTLY what I have been searching for. I just flew out to Los Angeles to pick up an '09 GT-R (white/gray, 12k miles) and drove it 740 miles back home. What an experience I HIGHLY suggest any of you looking, thinking of buying one that is far away... get it and drive it home. I have bought 2 other cars in the past and had them shipped to me. I had no idea what experience I was missing out on.

If you knew me, you would know that I have been through about 3 cars in the past 2 years (built '64 Chevelle Twin Turbo show car - too stressed to drive and enjoy it, heavily modded C5 Z06 - super fun, super fast, just a C5! heavily modded-Awesome 996TT - Amazing track car - But I have never tracked, and it was just barely too rough and not comfortable enough - and too "high speed" oriented. I need faster off line) Its been kind of like dating. I just wasn't happy with them and couldn't find the right mate. Like a very picky bachelor, I have a LOOOOONG list of standards the car must meet to satisfy me (Must be good looking! I'm 36, I have 3 young kids, so back seat, although minimal is must. I live in small town. No tracks, no drags, etc. So I have a few specific performance standards) What makes it so hard is that I live in a relatively small town, so there is not even another GT-R in this town. I had never sat or rode in one before test driving this one. This time.... I THINK I may have finally found my mate!!! I say THINK because the verdict is still out and I've only had it 24 hrs.

The car is the best "all around" car I have ever had. Others lacked in technology (ie. stereo, nav, etc), comfort, style, etc. I am SHOCKED at how much attention it got. Of course, this car has all badging removed. Every single stop at a gas station along the way, I was delayed because people would stop to chat, and ask about it. Because its de-badged, its funny. I even had 2 different people at 2 different stations ask if it was the "new Lexus".

I know many will say "worthless without pics" I am working on it. Have to get her cleaned up. Im a little anal. Removing wheels, so I can clean brakes, suspension, complete wheel, etc. I'll throw in a teaser or two below. I've only had it 24 hours and already done a couple of mods.

Thanks everyone. The wheels are MHT monotec forged. I purchased the car from a forum member. That's how I learned about the 4! He was great to deal with. Not mentioning names yet, until title comes thru and also respect his privacy, but most will know immediately. I think it's obvious.

Already done a few minor mods. Lots more in store. Gotta make her my own:)

Congrats!
Not only on the purchase but also that you drove it 700+ miles and it didnt brake down.
Looks like the tuner knew what he was doing.

Congratulations... this is definetely one of the best cars, especially for the price... we try and keep 2-3 pre owned in stock to sell, and usually roll one per month. Welcome to the 4!
